overlapping spheres

so this weekend i have a date with a guy "CN" from my hometown who my dad has been trying to set me up with since february. my dad works with CN's mom. they talk about it all the time (if they talk about it as much as my dad talks about with me) and are hopeful that we could probably love each other forever. so CN called and asked me out and he said he would buy me a fancy steak dinner. and i said sizzler? and he said of course. and then he said in park city. and i said there is a sizzler in park city? i should google it because i think he was KIDDING about sizzler. what a tease.

anyway i had sort of a dating dilemma. it was when i should first dash all my dad's hopes and/or make his sad. sooner or later. normally i wouldnt tell my dad i had a date/boyfriend at all but i knew it was a matter of time before this got back to him. he would probably find out at the grocery store. thats where he gets all the good gossip. about me. anyway i had to decide if i make him sad by not telling him and having him find out from a third party that i went out with CN or do i disappoint him by telling him later (after he has clearly found out and been praying for it for some time) that its not going to happen.

i choose sooner. it was rough. my dad got all smiley and was like i KNOW you are going out with CN because his mom told me last week. there is a chance my dad knew he was going to ask before i actually was asked. anyway, CN is going to be here any minute so i had better go...who knows if he takes me to sizzler it could be love after all.

he was really nice and told me i was interesting and he touched my knee and said i was pretty. it will clearly never work out.

At least his hands didn't make it up to your elbow.

Three out of three roommates agree that you're pretty Nat, just so you know.

natali said...

oh thank you jefe's apartment. that is nice of you to say.

Jefe said...

No Natali...THANK YOU!

i'm not trying to dis your post. but it would have been so much better if you told the prom picture story and how he has had a crush since high school. i mean, these are important facts.

natali said...

apparently my date confessed to becky that he liked me since high school and wanted to ask me to prom but instead just asked me for a prom picture (which i gave him because i have plenty)and maybe its in his high school scrap book his mom made him.

becky said...

yes, can i give more detail? thanks. so he wrote in her yearbook that she looked beautiful at prom and please mail him a copy of her prom picture. and left his address. which he thought was pretty funny of himself. and then she mailed it. which is awesome.

natali said...

and then he told me he kept it in his wallet and told people i was his girlfriend. which now i am starting to think might not have been a joke...

Either way this sounds like a powder cage of trouble, and someone has already lit the fuse. Keep me posted on how this explosion turns out.

natali said...

powder keg of trouble is actually how i usually describe my dating life.

sometimes my 6 year old niece reads this blog. i'd appreciate it if you wouldn't talk about "kegs" natali.

and for the record i think you and CN would have adorable children.

natali said...

colls this blog is rated PG 13. act accordingly. and i am glad you think our kids will be cute. i wont date a boy unless our combined DNA is attractive.

Jefe said...

That's why we're church pals Nat.
